Earl Huff Jr.


Earl Huff Jr.’s research examines how human-centered design and inclusive design principles can be applied to make information and communication technology (ICT) more inclusive, equitable, and accessible. He has conducted research in understanding the needs of vulnerable and underserved populations such as marginalized racial and ethnic groups, people with disabilities, and aging adults. The domains of Earl’s research have included transportation, education, and social media.

His current research focuses on equity and access in electronic learning (e-learning) and e-learning technologies for underserved populations. Earl employs participatory and interaction design methodologies to inform the design of technology for meeting the needs of all users. His secondary research looks at designing, developing, and employing interventions to increase the interest and self-efficacy of marginalized K-12 students in pursuing careers in computer and information science.

Earl earned his Ph.D. in Human-Centered Computing from Clemson University’s School of Computing. He earned his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Computer Science from Rowan University.
